  • Circular dichroism — (CD) refers to the differential absorption of left and right circularly polarized light.[1][2] This phenomenon was discovered by Jean Baptiste Biot, Augustin Fresnel, and Aimé Cotton in the first half of the 19th century.[3] It is exhibited in… …   Wikipedia

  • Magnetic circular dichroism — (MCD) is the differential absorption of left and right circularly polarized (LCP and RCP) light, induced in a sample by a strong magnetic field oriented parallel to the direction of light propagation. MCD measurements can detect transitions which …   Wikipedia
